Well we’re into last minute panic season again. As regular listeners will recall with 121 the disco-Carr’s debut, there were many late nights in the run up.
Same again with the Square. I did predict two years ago I’d need some last minute panic to get it finished and how right we are.
This is not being helped by a sudden flurry on the work front which has seen me go to London three days last week, same again this week (Digital Railway steering board today – Us exemplarferroequinologists know a thing or two about digital railways*), and probably the same again next week. I’ve not really even had time for blogging despite having had a week off in Devon where we took the MiniMes to see Minehead and Woody Bay (that latter not on a running day).
The chassis is being a sod but I shouldn’t really expect anything else since I’m designing something to replicate what is a tricky design anyway.
On the bodywork front we are going great guns though with the primer and a coat of black applied to give me the base for the colour. And as we all know, the Square looks great in black!
Hopefully the next post will see the chassis resolved and the loco painted. Or it might even be on the day of Warley, depending on time permitting.
